the process is the artwork

To Morpheus: “Döden ger lif och kärlek bortblandas” (Death gives life and love fades away)

Solen nyss slocknat,
Och Fästet har tjocknat,
Enslighetens tystnad rår;
Jag til Fröjas dyrkan går.

(The sun faded out
and the firmament thickened
The silence of solitude reigns
To Freyja’s worship I withdraw)

Fred Åkerström‘s Glimmande Nymph, 1976 (interpretation of Carl Michael Bellman’s Fredmans Epistel no. 72Lemnad vid Cajsa Lisas Säng, sent om en afton.)
